President Trump goes one-on-one with Chris Wallace | Full Interview
And hello again from fox news in washington, today from the white house we're on the president's, patio, just outside. The oval office. President trump you've agreed to answer all manner of questions, no subject off-limits, thank you, and welcome back to fox news sunday thank you very much, let's start with the surge, of the coronavirus. Across, the country. In, recent months you still talk about it as quote. Burning, embers, but i want to put up a chart that shows. Where we are with the illness over the last four months as you can see we hit a peak. Here in april, 36. 000 cases, it's cases, a day, cases, then, it went down. And now since june. It has gone, up more than doubled, one day this week 75. 000. New cases. More than double, chris that's because we have great testing, because we have the best testing in the world if we didn't test you wouldn't be able to show that, chart, if we tested half as much those numbers would be down but but this is burning embers sir this is a foreign, but i don't say i say, flames, we'll put out the flames, and we'll put out in some cases, just, burning embers, we also have burning embers we have embers. And we do have flames, florida, became. More flame-like, but it's uh it's going to be under control. And you know it's not just this country, it's many countries we don't talk about it in the news they don't talk about mexico, and brazil, and, still parts of europe, which actually got hit sooner than us so it's a little ahead of us in that sense. But, you take a look why don't they talk about, mexico. Which is not helping us and all i can say is thank god i build most of the wall because if i didn't have the wall up we would have a much bigger problem with mexico but sir we have the seventh, highest, mortality. Rate, in the world. Our mortality, rate is higher than brazil. It's higher than russia. And the european, union, has us on a travel, ban yeah i think what we'll do well we have them in a travel ban too chris i closed them off, if you remember, i was the one that did the european, union, very early but when you talk about mortality, rates, i think it's the opposite, i think we have one of the lowest, mortality, rates. We had 900. Deaths in a single day we will take, this week, ready. Do you, please get me the mortality, right yeah kaylee's, right here, i heard we have one of the lowest maybe the lowest mortality. Rate anywhere in the world you have the numbers please, because i heard we had the best mortality, right. Number, number one low mortality, right i hope you show the scenario because it shows what fake news is all about. You said we had the worst mortality, rate in the world and we have the best.
All Right it's a little complicated. But bear with us we went with numbers from johns hopkins, university. Which charted the mortality. Rate for 20 countries, hit by the virus, the u.s, ranked seventh, better than the united kingdom, but worse than brazil, and russia, the white house went with this chart from the european. Cdc. Which shows italy and spain doing worse, but countries like brazil, and south korea, doing better, other countries, doing better like russia, aren't, included, in the white house charge, california. Locking down again florida. Deadliest, day, of the entire, pandemic. Uh, hospitals. At capacity. A number of places around the country, shortages, of testing. Shortages, of personal, protective, equipment for nurses and doctors. A lot of people say this is because, we don't have a national. Plan you talk about states we don't have a national plan do you take responsibility. For that look, i take responsibility. Always for everything, because, it's ultimately. My job too i have to get everybody in line, some governors, have done well some governors, have done poorly, they're supposed to have supplies. They didn't have i supplied, everybody. Now we have somewhat of a surge in certain areas and, other areas we're doing great, but we have a surge in certain areas, but you don't hear people complaining, about ventilators, we've got all the ventilators, we can use we're supplying them to other countries, we go out into parking, lots and everything, everybody gets a test. We find, if we did half the testing with all of that being said. I'm glad we did it this is the. Right way to do it i'm glad we did what we're doing, but we have more tests by far. Than any, country. In the world but sir, testing. Is up 37. Well that's very good i understand. Cases are up. 194. It isn't just the testing has gone up it's that the virus, has spread the positivity. Rate has increased. There are many of those cases. Many of those cases, are young people that would heal in a day they have the sniffles, and we put it down as a test. Many of them, don't forget i guess it's like. 99.7. Percent, people are going to get better, and in many cases they're going to get better very quickly.
We Go out and we look and then on the news look if you go back to the news all of your even your wonderful, competitors. You'll see, cases, are up well cases, are up many of those cases, shouldn't even be cases, cases are up because we have the best. Testing, in the world and we have the most tested, no country, has ever done what we've done in terms of testing. We are the envy of the world they call and they say, the most incredible, job anybody's, done is our job on testing. Because we're going to very shortly be up to 50, million, tests, you look at other countries they don't even do tests they do test if somebody, walks into the hospital. They're sick. They're really sick they test them then, or they'll test them in a doctor's, office, but they don't go around have massive, areas of testing and we do, and i'm glad we do, but it really skews the numbers, i'm going to, do you a favor because i'm sure a lot of people listening, right now, are going to say. Trump. He tries to play it down, he tries to make it not seem as serious as it, is. 75. 000 cases, a day, show me the death chart. Well, i don't have the doubt. The death chart is a thousand, cases, a day excuse me, it's all too much it shouldn't be one case it came from china they should have never let it escape, they should have never let it out but it is what it is, take a look at europe take a look at the numbers in europe and by the way they're having surgeries. Are 6 000 in the whole european union they don't test. They don't test like it's impossible, that they don't have the viruses, badly, it's possible that they don't test that's what's possible. We find cases and many of those cases. Heal automatically. We're finding. In a way we're creating, trouble. Certainly we're creating, trouble for the fake news to come along and say, oh we have more cases look, we did something that nobody's, ever done not only the ventilators, where we're supplying them all over the world. We did, a testing, program. The likes of which nobody's, ever done before, the head of the cdc, dr redfield, said this on tuesday. I do think the fall, and the winter of 2020, and 2021, are going to be probably one of the most difficult, times that we've, experienced. In, american public health do you agree with dr redfield, i don't know and i don't think he knows i don't think anybody knows with this this is a very tricky. Deal. Everybody, thought the summer, it would go away and we'd come back in the fall, well in the summer it came they used to say the heat the heat was good for it and it really knocks it out remember. And then it might come back in the fall, so they got that one wrong they they got a lot wrong, they got a lot wrong the world health got a tremendous, amount wrong, they basically did whatever china wanted them to. And will save now almost 500, million dollars a year which is nice, but the world health got a lot wrong. But. This is one of the sharpest, criticisms. Of you i agree, people say. That you. Talk about. The world as you'd like to see it rather than follow the science no, well let me let me just ask the question sir. Why, on earth would your administration. Be involved in a campaign, at this point to discredit. Dr fauci, who is, the nation's, top infectious, disease, expert, because we're not. If one man from my administration. Doesn't like him, because he made a few mistakes look dr fauci said don't wear a mask. Dr fauci told me not to ban china it would be a big mistake i did it, over and above his recommendation.
Dr Fauci, then said you saved, tens of thousands, of lives more than that, he said you saved tens of thousands, of lives, dr fauci has made some mistakes, but i have a very good i spoke to him yesterday, at length i have a very good relationship, with dr fatcher, but sir this. Week this weekend. Your white house put out a series, of statements, so-called, mistakes. That dr, fauci has had made one of your closest, aides one of your right-hand, men daniel's. Daniel scavina. Put out. This. Have you seen this. Dr, dr, fawcett who shows him as a leaker. And an alarmist, oh i don't know that he's a little why he's a little bit of an armist that's okay a little bit. I'm going to learn a little bit of an alarm system, let me just say. Dr fauci at the beginning. And again i have a great relationship, with him i spoke to him at length yesterday. Dr fauci at the beginning said this will pass don't worry about it this will pass he was wrong. Dr fauci, said don't ban china don't ban china, i did he then admitted that i was right you made mistakes, too. I guess everybody, makes i was gonna say you said at one point it's one person. Coming in from china. And we have it under control, it's. Going to be just fine, when you have 15, people. And the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That's a pretty good job we've done i think we're going to be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point uh that's going to sort of just disappear, i hope i'll be right eventually. I will be right eventually, you know i said it's going to disappear, i'll say it again but it's going to disappear. And i'll be right i don't think so, right i don't think so you know why it doesn't. Describe it because i've been right. Probably, more than anybody, else then there are masks, from the first day that the cdc. Said that people should wear mass on april 3rd. You said, you weren't going to, you, wore a mask for the first time in public. At walter reed, this weekend. Question the cdc. Says if everybody, wore, a mask. For four to six weeks we could get this under control. Do you regret, not wearing a mask, in public from the start. And, would you consider. Will you consider, a national, mandate, that people need to wear masks no i want people to have a certain freedom. And i don't believe in that no, and i don't agree with the statement that if everybody wear a mask everything, disappears. Hey dr fauci said don't wear a mask. Our surgeon general terrific, guy said don't wear a mask, everybody was saying don't wear a mask all of a sudden everybody's got to wear a mask and as you know masks cause problems, too with that being said, i'm a believer in masks, i think masks, are good but. I leave it up to the governors. Many of the governors, are changing, they're more. Masked. Into, they like. The concept, of masks. But some of them don't agree, i do say this. Schools, have to open, young people, have to go to school. And there's problems, when you don't go to school too and there's going to be a funding, problem because we're not going to fund, when they don't open their schools we're not going to fund them we're not going to give them money, if they're not going to school. If they don't open two points on that first of all what the federal government, gives, is only is eight percent ten percent, and you know what uh that's a lot of money. And you're going to take them you know where the money goes it goes overwhelmingly. To disadvantaged. Kids and children with disabilities. Let this i wouldn't just put send more money so that schools be safer let the schools, open did you ever see the statistics, on young people below the age of 18. The state of new jersey had. Thousands, of deaths of all of these thousands, one person. Below the age of 18, in the entire state. One person and that was a person that had, i believe he said diabetes. One person below, the age of 18. Died in the state of new jersey, during all of this you know they had a hard time. And they're doing very well now. So. That's it the stimulus, bill is running out the end of this month. The republicans, say they want liability. Limits. Which the democrats, don't like you say that you want a payroll, tax cut, which even some republicans. Are. Cool to. Well a lot of republicans, like it. Will, you, only sign a bill that has those two provisions, well we're going to see but we do need protections. Because businesses, are going to get sued just because somebody walked in you don't know where this virus comes from they'll sit down at a restaurant they'll sue the restaurant the guy's out of business.
So We do need some kind of a, you know immunity. You do need it just like you need immunity, for the police okay whether they like it or not you need immunity for the police, but they do need a form of immunity. You don't know if they caught it and nobody's ever going to be able to prove it one way or the other you can't put these, you know the people out look, the democrats, don't want to do that because they're total. They're totally captured. By the lobby of lawyers. The lawyers lobby is probably, the most powerful, in the country what about the payroll tax cut uh i want to see it i want to see if, it's win the bill. Uh i'll have to see but yeah i would consider, not signing it if we don't have a payroll tax cut yes. Hot enough that you're here mr president it's hot it's about, uh. Well sort of almost record-breaking, you know, we wanted to do it inside this was your choice but i wanted you to sweat a little bit. Well we both are, there has been a spike, in violent crime. In america. In recent, weeks we've seen. Deaths. Up in new york deaths up in chicago. Shootings. How do you explain it and what are you going to do about it. I explain it very simply by saying that they're democrat-run. Cities, they're liberally, run they're, stupidly, run. We have. Forced them in seattle, to end the chop because you know we were going in that following day you probably have heard it we were getting ready to go in we were all set. And when they heard that we were going they set their police force, liberal. Democrats, have been running, cities in this country for decades poorly. Why is it so bad. Right now, uh they've run them poorly, it was always bad but now it's gotten, totally out of control, and it's really because they want to defund the police and biden wants to fun. Sir he does not. Look. He signed a. Charter. With bernie sanders, i will get that one just like i was right on the mortality, rate. Did you read the charter that he agreed, there's nothing about the funding, oh really it says abolish, it says. Let's go, all right let me give me the charter please all right chris you've got to start studying for this he says defund, the police. He says, defund. The police. They talk about abolishing. The police, they talk about illegal, aliens. I look forward to seeing that meanwhile, the george. Floyd. Murder. Has, reignited. The issue of racism. In policing, in this country i want to give you a couple of statistics. Nationwide. Blacks. Are twice as likely, fewer in absolute numbers but in terms of per capita, blacks are twice as likely to be shot and killed, by police, as whites are, in minneapolis. Over the last five years police used force, against blacks. At a rate. Seven times. That against, whites. Can you understand why blacks would be angry at that, of course i do, of course they do, many whites are killed also you have to say that i mean many many whites are killed i hate the sound, but this is going on, for. Decades, this is going on for a long time long before i got here. You know if you look at what's going on in portland those are anarchists, and we've taken a very tough stand, if we didn't take a stand in portland you know we've arrested, many of these leaders. If we didn't take that stand. Right now you would have a problem like you they were going to lose portland. So let's see what this says here. Prosecution. Sanctuary, cities. Incentivize. Illegal, alien, expand. Asylum. Abolish. Immigration, detention. No that's not what. We'll find okay this thing is many pages, long end prosecution. Of illegal, border crosses. Support, deathly, and these are the worst things. I'm not disagreeing, with you on any of those i'm disagreeing, about defund, police, the white house never sent us evidence the bernie, biden, platform, calls for defunding. Or abolishing, police. Because, there is none, it calls for increased, funding for police departments, that meet certain standards. Biden has called for redirecting. Some police, funding, for related, programs. Like mental health counseling. This week you said that black lives matter and the confederate, flag, are both, matters, issues, of freedom, of speech.
But In the case of the confederate, flag. There are a lot of people who say these were traitors. Who. Split from this country, fought this country, in large part. To preserve, slavery. Is the confederate. Flag. Offensive. It depends, on who you're talking about when you're talking about, when people proudly, have their confederate, flags they're not talking about racism, they love their flag, it represents, the south, they like the south people right now like the south, i say it's freedom, of of. Many things, but it's freedom of speech so you're not offended by it well, i'm not offended, either by black lives matter that's freedom of speech. And you know the whole thing with canceled, culture. We can't, cancel, our whole history we can't forget that the north, and the south fought. We have to remember that otherwise we'll end up fighting, again, you can't you can't just cancel, all this but let me ask you this when it gets to be more than just cancel, well maybe this is cancelled culture. The, national, defense, authorization. Act the ndaa. You have threatened to veto, it, because. In the bill, and this is supported, by republicans, as well as democrats, it would rename. Army bases, named for confederate, generals now this is a bill that funds, military, operations, it gives. Soldiers, a pay raise. You're going to veto that because they'll get their pay raise hey look don't tell me this i got soldiers. The biggest pay raises in the history of our understood. Of our military. I got soldiers, brand new equipment brand new jets brand new rockets, brand new 2.5, trillion i did more for the military. Than any president. That's ever had this. Because i think that fort bragg fought robert and lee, all of these forts that have been named that way for. A long time decades, and decades the military, says they're for that, excuse me i don't care what the military, says i do i'm, supposed to make the decision. Fort bragg is a big deal, we won, two world wars, nobody even knows general bragg, we won two world wars. Go to that community, where fort bragg is in a great state i love that state, go to, go to the community. Say how do you like the idea of renaming. Fort bragg. And. Then what are we going to name it. You're going to name it after the reverend al sharpton. What are you going to name it chris, tell me what you're going to name it. So, there's a whole thing here, we won two world, wars. Two world wars, beautiful, world wars, that were vicious and horrible. And we want them out of fort bragg. We want to out of. All of these forts that now, they want to throw those names away. And no i'm against that, and you know what, most other people are, and i even i don't believe in polls because i see the, fakest polls i've ever seen. But that poll is a 64. Thing which actually surprised me. We won world wars, out of these. Out of these military, bases, no i'm not going to go changing them.
I'm Not going to say you'll be each of them. I might yeah i might, at mount rushmore, on july 3rd you said. That we face a far, left fascism. In this country and then you said this, our children, are taught. In school, to hate their own country. And to believe, that the men and women who built it. Were not heroes, but that were. Villains. You said our children, are taught in school. To hate our country. Where do you see that i just look at, i look at school, i watch i read. Look at the stuff. Now they want to change if, 1492. Columbus, discovered, america you know we grew up you grew up we all did that's what we learned now they want to make it the 1619. Project where did that come from, what does it represent, i don't even know so slavery. That's what they're saying but they don't even know they just want to make a change. Cancel, culture i hate the term actually but i use it better they cancel people, hate i think so yeah i think so, look at the professors, look at what's going on in the colleges, if a conservative, goes on a college and look, we have. As many as them. Excuse, me i think to the best of my knowledge. We're sitting at the white house, and the oval office is right behind me we have as many as them. But who's them. The. Liberal. Radical, left, and i'm not talking all i think liberal i i could tell you i like a lot of liberal. People like like a lot of liberal governors, and senators. But but chris. We have a radical. Left, destructive. Ideology. And it's being taught in our schools. And, don't act like you're surprised to hear this there are books written about it. And we can't let that go on. We can't let them, change. The true meaning of what we're all about. And that's what they're trying to do and i don't want it to happen, not on my watch it's not going to happen on my watch, mr president you'll be happy to know that fox news has a new poll, out today. And you're going to be the very first person to hear about it. In the national, horse race joe biden. Leads you by eight points, 49. To 41. That's, i think three four points slimmer, than it was. A month ago, and on the issues, people trust, biden. More. To handle the coronavirus. By 17, points on race relations, by 21, points. And even on the economy, they trust biden moore by one point, i understand we still have more than a hundred days to this election but at this point. You're losing. First of all i'm not losing. Because, those are, fake polls, they were fake in 2016. And now they're. Even more fake. The polls were much worse in 2016.. They interview 22 percent republican. Well how do you do 22. Republican, you see what's going on. Uh, i have other polls, that put me, leading, and we have polls where i'm leading, i have a poll where we're leading in every swing state, and i don't believe, that you're. First of all the fox polls whoever does your fox polls they're among the worst they got it all wrong in 2016.. They've been wrong on every poll i've ever seen i must tell you no i'm just telling you, and and let me let me ask you this so in the economy so i've always lead on the economy. By a lot i know which is why i would like, to put two sentences, together. They wheel them out he goes up he repeats, he they ask him questions he reads a teleprompter. And then he goes back into his basement. You tell me the american, people want to have that in an age where we're in trouble.
With Other nations, that are looking to do numbers on us so let me ask you a direct question no i'm going to ask you a direct question about joe biden, is joe biden. Senile. I don't want to say that i say he's not competent, to be president. To be president, you have to be sharp, and tough, and. So many other things. He doesn't even come out of his basement, they think oh this is a great campaign, so he goes in, i'll then make a speech it'll be a great speech, and some young guys start writing. Vice president, biden said this this, this he didn't say it. Joe doesn't know he's alive, okay he doesn't know he's alive. Do the american people want that number one number two, i built the greatest economy, ever built anywhere in the world not only in this country anywhere in the world, until we got hit with the china virus, we got hit with a virus, shouldn't have happened. And we had to close up we saved millions of lives now we've opened it up got to go back to school, we're open, we've got to do things we had the best job numbers we've ever had last month we should have good ones coming up, in two weeks. Look, i built the greatest, economy, in history. I'm now doing it again. You see the numbers the numbers are through the roof the democrats. Are purposely. Keeping their schools, close, keeping their states close, i call to michigan, i want to have a big rally in michigan. Do you know we're not allowed to have a rally in michigan do you know we're not allowed to have a rally in minnesota, do you know we're not allowed to have a rally in. Nevada. We're not allowed to have rallies. Well, and these democrat, run statements, some people would say that that's a health risk some people would say it's fine. I mean but i guarantee, you there's some issues after time, everything, was gone 100. They still wouldn't allow it they're not allowing me to do it so they're not that, they're not allowing me to have rallies but i got to tell you. If i may sir respectfully. In the fox poll they ask people. Who is more competent, who's got whose mind. Is sounder. Biden beats you in that well i tell you what, uh, let's take a test. Let's take a test right now, let's go down joe and i will take a test, let him take the same test, that i took, incidentally, i took the test too when i heard that you passed it yeah how did you do it well it's not the hardest task no but it has a picture and it says, that and it's an element no no no, you see that's all misrepresentation. That's what it was on the web it's all misrepresentation. Because yes the first few questions are easy, but i'll bet you couldn't even answer the last five questions, i'll bet you couldn't they get very hard the last five well one of them was count back from 100 by seven. And let me tell you. You couldn't, answer. You couldn't answer, all right what's the question many of the questions i'd get you the test i'd like to give it but i guarantee, you that joe biden could not answer those questions. Okay. And i answered, all 35, questions, correctly, you you talk about how. You're winning, campaign's, going well why did you replace. Brad parscale, isn't that because he's a great. Digital, guy. Uh. We all like him a lot, but i have somebody that i that was involved you know they're all they were all on the 2016. Campaign, and we have cory and we have all the people and actually steve bannon's been. Much better not being involved he says the greatest president, ever i mean he's saying things that i said. Let's keep steve out there he's doing a good job.
But They're all being they're all involved if joe biden got in first of all he won't call the shots. The people, the radical left people that surround him will call, religion, will be gone. Okay. Life, you could forget about that the whole question of life, supreme, when you say life you mean abortion. Absolutely. A hundred percent, that whole question which is a very you know it's always been a 50 50, thing it's actually trending, a little bit. More toward. Once, religion, is going to be gone what does that mean. Look at what they're doing to the churches. They won't let the churches, even open if they want to stand in a field. Six feet apart. We've had churches that wanted to stand in fields, six feet apart there has never been, an administration. That's done so much as i have, from. Tax cuts. To regulation. Cuts to rebuilding, the military. To getting choice for the vets. Nobody's, done the things i've done. Nobody, in three and a half years, no other president has been able to do what i've done you're running, in large part on the economy, you've built it once now we have the coronavirus, you're going to build it again and in fact you had great jobs numbers in may. You had solid jobs numbers in june, but i want you to look at some projections. The nonpartisan. Congressional, budget office says the unemployment, rate, at the end. Of the year will be ten and a half percent. Jp, morgan, says in the fourth quarter. Gdp, will contract. By 6.2. Percent. With states. Now. Rolling back some of the reopening. And, and well there are a lot of republicans, there are a lot of republican, states. Like texas. But here's, they'll be open very soon just ask my question there's no reason for california. To do to be doing what they're doing all right, except. For november, 3rd with the states. Shutting back the reopening, in a lot of, cases new lockdowns. Won't the economy, still be a problem for you on elections i don't think so i think the economy. Is, expanding. And growing, beautifully, now the democrats, want to keep it closed, as long as possible, because they think that's good for election. But i think the economy, is doing very well, now we're coming back, and we're coming back at a level that nobody would have thought possible. And we and by the way take a look at another i mean a gauge whether you like it or not the stock market. The stock market nasdaq, hit its all-time. High two weeks ago. And it's beaten at 14, different times okay. The, stock market, dow etc. Is, a thousand, points away, from its all-time, high meaning very close. We're going to have a stock market, perhaps. On november. 3rd. That's the highest, in history. I want to talk to you about obamacare. Since the pandemic. Hit millions, of people have lost their jobs. And thereby lost their health insurance, and almost a half a million have signed up for obamacare. Your administration. Just announced that you're signing on to a lawsuit. To overturn. Obamacare. And replace it. Why does it make sense to overturn, obamacare. Which people now are. Relying on democrats, are going to say, the man, who's wanted to kill obamacare, is going to take away, the protection, for pre-existing, conditions first of all we got rid of the individual, mandate, pre-existing, conditions, will always be taken care of by me and republicans. 100, but you've been in the office three and a half years you don't have people we haven't had. Uh excuse me, you heard me yesterday. We're signing a health care plan. Within two weeks, a full and complete.
Health Care plan, that the supreme, court decision, on daca. Gave me the right to do, so we're gonna solve. We're gonna sign an immigration, plan, a health care plan, and various, other plans. And. Nobody, will have done what i'm doing in the next four weeks, the supreme, court gave the president, of the united, states, powers, that nobody thought the president, had, by approving, by doing what they did their decision, on daca. And daca is going to be taken care of also. But we're getting rid of it because we're going to replace, it with something much better, but we got rid of already. Which was most of obamacare, the individual, mandate. And that i've already won on and we won also on the supreme, court, but the decision, by the supreme, court on daca. Allows, me to do things on immigration. On health care on other things. That we've never done before. And you're going to find it to be a very exciting, two weeks. Your niece, mary trump has written a book about, you, and your family and one of her main points, is that she says your dad. Fred. Trump, senior. Damaged. The whole family. And. Here's what she says about what you learned from your father. He learned to become the killer, you mentioned. The man, who. Needs to, succeed, at all costs. Who. Will. Do anything. Um. To get, attention. Financial, rewards. And, to win. Do you see any truth in that. My father liked to win, my father was a very good man he was a strong man, it's disgraceful, that she said that, she was not exactly, a family favorite, we didn't, have a lot of respect, or like for her, i would have never said that except she writes a book that's so stupid and so vicious. And it's a lie. My father was a great wonderful, man. Let me just ask you this question this is not a person that i spent. Very much time with very little time. And now i'm glad. You've developed, a pretty, thick, skin, over the years from decades, of attacks, in new york tabloids. Now from, the press, here. And your political opponents here in washington. But even for donald trump, does it hurt you at all, to be attacked, in such, personal, terms. By a member of your own family, uh it hurts me more about attacking, my father. Not being kind to my mother i have a mother who was like a saint. She was incredible, she was an incredible, woman. And she was nasty, even to my mother. She's a very scarred, person. She was not. Much of a, family person but look let me just tell you, my father was. I think he was the most solid, person. I've ever met, and he was a very good person he was a very very good person he was strong but he was good, for her to say the kind of things a psychopath. That he was a psychopath. Anybody that knew fred trump would call him a psychopath. And you know what, if he was i would tell you, and i would say you know chris i was with my father and it was impossible, my father was he was tough he was tough on me he was tough on all of the kids, but tough. In a in a solid, sense in a. Really good sense, for her to say, i think the word she used was psychopath. What a disgrace, she ought to be ashamed of herself, that book is a lie. Some people, were. Surprised. When you agreed. To this interview to sit down with me what are you going to ask. Especially. Because of some of the mean tweets. That you've said about me mike wallace wanna be nasty, and obnoxious. I will tell you after that one my son peter who you've met called and he said, nasty, no obnoxious. Maybe. But here's the question. One of your beef seems to be, that. I put democrats. On the show and i ask them questions. And and i guess the question i have is, don't you understand it's my job. To put democrats, on as well as republicans, and to ask them probing questions just like i asked republicans. I'm not a big fan of fox, i'll be honest with you they've changed a lot since roger ailes. And i watch, people, like swalwell. Who i don't even know he goes on the show, he got less than one percent all of a sudden he's on being interviewed, for endless yeah but i i interviewed an answer wait i interviewed nancy. I answered i uh interviewed. Using one tweet after i interviewed nancy pelosi. And in the interview, i asked her specifically. About the fact in february. You were, in, chinatown. Pitching tourism. While the virus was spreading. If the president, underplayed, the threat, in the early, days. Speaker pelosi, didn't you as well. Isn't that legitimate, to talk to the speaker of the house, look i know you very well i respect you a lot i respect your father a lot i thought he's one of the most talented, journalists. There are, and you likewise, are a very talented, person. I do think this i think you are very, uh. Uh, i think you are, toward the democrat, side which is okay i mean, it's not true, if watch the james comey interview i did in december.
17. Significant. Errors, in the fisa, process, and you say that it was handled. In a thoughtful, and appropriate, way, yeah he's right i was wrong but you make it sound like you're, a a bystander. An eyewitness, you were the director of the fbi, well a lot of this was going on sir sure, i'm responsible, for that's why i'm telling you i was wrong i was overconfident. As director. In our procedures. You couldn't do as tough an interview with comey i i'd. Like to think i treat everybody the same, it just seems to me that you are very prone to be nice to the democrats, and maybe i'm wrong about that chris but it's an honor to be with you it's fine i love it i love it that it's close to 100 degrees, your choice again yeah i know that so, i'm not. Saying you're going to lose i am not saying that we saw how you turned it around last time i don't think i'm going to lose at all, but if you did. How crushing would it be first of all let me just tell you something, i know everyone wants to know that because they'd love to see me lose fine, i'm not i have not seen that, i've been written off do you know how many times i've been. I'm not doing it this time, don't don't do it because, but how crushing would it be and you know why i won't lose because the country in the end. They're not going to have a man. Who. Who's, shot he's shot, he's mentally, shot. Let him come out of his basement go around. I'll make four or five speeches, a day i'll be interviewed, by you i'll be interviewed, by the worst killers that hate my. My guts. They hate my guts. There's nothing they can ask me. That i won't give them a proper, answer to some people will like it some people won't like i agree with that but look. You answered, let biden, sit through an interview, like this, he'll be on the ground crying for mommy he'll say mommy mommy please take me home well we've asked him for an interview sir he can't do an interview he's incompetent. There's a number you don't mention, it's called the enthusiasm. Number. The enthusiasm. For trump is through the roof. I haven't mentioned it even higher than last time. The enthusiasm. For biden, is non-existent. Everyone knows each other but the enthusiasm. Against, you. Okay that's his only shot, right that's his only shot i agree. And those people know i'm doing a good job, but there's something in my personality. That they don't like because look, nobody's, done what i've done, biden wants to come in. And ruin our country, triple your taxes. He wants to do things he wants to add regulations. That i've all cut. And we still have regulation, a lot of regulation, but i've cut it down to a level that nobody's.
Nobody Ever thought possible. He will destroy this country, but, it won't be him, it will be the radical, left, the same type, ideology. That took over venezuela. One of the richest countries in the world, they now have no water they have no food, and they have no medicine. That's going to happen. Two final questions a few wins. In general not talking about november. Are you a good loser. I'm not a good loser, i don't like to lose it i don't lose too often, i don't like something but are you gracious. You don't know until you see it depends, i think mail-in. Voting, is is going to rig the election i really do. Uh are you suggesting, that you might not accept the results of the election i have to say look, hillary clinton asked me the same thing no i asked you the same thing in the debate, there is a tradition in this country. In fact one of the prize of this country. Is the peaceful, transition, of power and that no matter how hard fought a campaign, is, that at the end of the campaign. That, the loser, concedes. To the winner not saying that you're necessarily, going to be the loser or the winner but that the loser concedes, to the winner. And that the country. Comes together, in part for the good of the country. Are you saying you're not prepared, now, what i'm saying, is that i will tell you at the time i'll keep you in suspense. Well chris. And you know what she's the one. That never accepted her great she never accepted, her loss and she looks like can you give can you give a direct answer you will accept the election. Look you i have to see no i'm not going to just say yes i'm not going to say you know and i didn't last time either, whether it's in 2021. Or 2025. How will you regard. Your years as president of the united states. I think i was very unfairly, treated. Uh from before i even won, i was, under investigation. By a bunch of thieves crooks, it was an illegal investigation. But what about the russia, what about the good parts there no i want to know this. I have done more than any president, in history, in the first three and a half years and i've done it. Suffering, through investigations. Where people have been general, flynn where people have been so unfairly, treated. The russia hoax it was all a hoax, the mueller, scam, it was all a scam, it was all false. I made a bad decision, on, one bad decision. Jeff sessions, and, now i feel good because he lost overwhelmingly. In the great state of alabama. Here's the bottom line. I've been very unfairly, treated, and i don't say that as paranoid. I've been very everybody, says it it's going to be interesting, to see what happens, but there's tremendous. Evidence right now as to how unfairly, treated i was. President, obama. And biden. Spied on my campaign. It's never happened in history. If it were the other way around. The people would be in jail for 50 years right now that would be comey, that would be brennan, that would be all of this, the two lovers, strzok. And paige. They would be in jail now for many many years. They would be in jail it would have started two years ago and they'd be there for 50 years. The fact is, they illegally. Spied, on my campaign. Let's see what happens. Despite, that, i did more than any president, in history. In the first, three and a half years. Mr president. Thank you thanks for talking with us thank you thank you very much.
